Raccoon-amania...

Out of the camera, way to dark

At 5:30 AM Sunday morning, the dogs went tearing to the door. Alert! Alert!
I went to the open window and heard loud chittering noises.

I did not let the dogs out. 

At 7 Am which is ball game time for Jake, we let them out and they went straight to the bottom of our big pine tree...


cropped to show their faces

 two raccoon, sitting in a tree,
both their eyes staring at me.
Look Bob a raccoon and her baby
Oh no, not a baby, they are making babies.


 YES! MS shouted they are!
I hope they are not to far..
I hope they stay, 
While I am away


MS sprinted for the table
and was very able
to change the lens before they were gone


OK so the last one doesn't rhyme. they were there
from 6 am to 8 am.

photos today taken 7 am - tomorrow will be at photos from 8 am.

Cranberry Morning said...

Looks like he's enjoying it. :-) Aren't those the cutest faces! You'll be having lots more little bandits in the near future! What fun for the pups!

DeniseinVA said...

What a hoot! Those raccoons look a bit put out for being disturbed. Great photos Sandra!

LindyLou Mac said...

How amazing that you get such creatures in your garden! :)

Rebecca said...

Seriously Sandra! Some privacy please.... LOL. What a catch. I better look more closely when the dog is going bezerk in the morning.

TexWisGirl said...

no quickie for them, obviously!

Montanagirl said...

Wow - Now that's something you prob'ly don't see very often! nice sequence, and love the commentary!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Ohh my!! Are you sure they are Siamese twins? Too funny how they haven't changed position on each other!! Great shot!! Better in the tree than in your house walls!! That was NOT a fun several weeks!

George said...

I didn't realize the Mad Snapper was such a Peeping Tom. But you obviously didn't interrupt the raccoons.

Ginny said...

These pictures are so cute! And I never thought I would use the word cute to describe sex on a blog comment! But just as good is the way you write and your text. You write in a way that cheers me up and makes me happy. I can always picture all your adventures in my head.

photowannabe said...

I agree, better in the trees than in your attic or walls.
It will be interesting to see what "develops" from these terrific photos.
You are quite the photographer, Sandra.

Caught in the act,the Racoons,that is.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Wow, you caught them....that's too funny!

Ann said...

This is the very first time I have viewed raccoon porn...lol

S. Etole said...

Ahem ...

eileeninmd said...

Wow, you did catch them in the act.. They are cute, amazing photos.. Have a happy week!

Kay said...

They are so cute, but I hear they can be pesky.

Susannah said...

Well, Sandra....these are probably close to the most unusual photos you have ever gotten! I am still laughing. Wonder what tomorrow will bring. But seriously, their little babies are so cute but can be a pain in the neck!!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

I've had insect porn on my blog a couple of times but so far I haven't caught a mammal in the act. Of course there was a lot of noise on our roof the other night and now you have me wondering ...

Cute shots, can't wait to see what you have for tomorrow.

Chatty Crone said...

Oh my gosh you got them up close and personal! Those were pretty!!!

Willow said...

Wild thing !

Betsy Adams said...

How funny... Well, guess those raccoons didn't think so --while they were busy doing 'the' thing!!!!!! You may be the first person ever to photograph a couple of raccoons making babies!!!! Send the photographs to National Geographic --or some nature magazine....

Well--that is exciting, but I also keep thinking of the BAD news... Two raccoons can make SEVERAL more...Do you want that many raccoons around your house--upsetting the dogs and making a mess???? Hmmmmm---maybe they'll move on!!!! Personally, I don't like them around here --but luckily, they only come around at nights.. BUT--we can't leave out any of the bird feeders at nights....

Hugs,
Betsy

Cheryl @ TFD said...

LOL! I can't help but laugh at the idea of MS taking photos while they are making babies! They are cute and you got some super shots!

barbara l. hale said...

A little raccoon porn to start the day. Priceless.

Grandma C said...

They are such cute little trouble makers. I am surprised that they were still around at 8am. Mine were always gone before the sun was up. Lucky you to see nature being created. lol

Maggie M said...

Wow!! Amazing sweet Sandra that you got all those terrific shots of the racoons, making more to grace your pine tree. lol Hugs

Amy Burzese said...
